5 Attachment(s)
Well its beginning. Today i started my ordering from Jason at Krawl Off Road. I just want to say thanks to him for his great pricing and knowledge he had. Every question I had he handled straight forward and told me what I did and didn't need. I would recommend him and his business to anyone looking for JK items!

Now to my build :wavey:

My Stock Build Factory Order-(Very simple and to the point lol)
2013 Wrangler Sport
Crush Clear Coat
6 Speed Manual
Hardtop
A/C
3.73 Rear Gearing

-Lift-

Rock Krawler 2.5 Max Travel-Ordered 11/21/2012

-Wheels and Tires-

Wheels-Mickey Thompson Classic 2 Black 16''
Tires- Goodyear Duratracs 315/75/16

-Armor-

Front Bumper-Undecided :(
(Thinking Rampage Recovery because i like the prerunner full-midwidth look)

Sliders-Ace Rock Rails-Ordered 11/21/2012

Rear Bumper-Ace Rear Bumper w/ Tire Carrier-Ordered 11/21/2012
(Reciever and Light holes)(Need to find some lights to fit here and wire them up)

-Lighting-

Front Bumper lighting-(IPF) im thinking but not sure.

Winch(not sure if ill be getting a winch. I like the look of lights in that spot on the Rampage recovery and im not sure where else to put the lights on that bumper.)

-CB Radio Items-

Cobra 29 LX
FireStick K4 Stub Mount
FireStick K-1A Push-n-Twist quick disconnect
Firestick II 4 feet Tunable Tip - Black
Firestick SS-3H Heavy Duty Stainless Steel Antenna Spring
18' Coax Cable

I'm sure i missed some things but ill catch them hopefully with your help!
Any suggestions or ideas always welcome! Please comment on what you think because id rather have opinions!

Oh and if you like something better than what i have listed or want to show me something please provide a link :)

Oh and the dark pictures are the night it arrived off the truck at the dealer. The one is out testing stock "offroading" and one is topless and doorless in my driveway :)

Great looking build!

Be sure to tell Jason you need the NEW Crown brake lines with that kit. RK always sends out the ones meant for older JKs. Crown actually has a new version for 2011-13 JKs. (I had to exchange mine directly with Crown a few weeks ago) More details here:
http://www.jk-forum.com/showthread.php?t=254578

I honestly don't understand why RK itself is ignoring this issue. If Jason has any questions about this brake problem, just tell him to give me a call or shoot me an email...

Again, though, awesome build!

He may not be aware of this problem yet, so please don't hesitate to send him the link and tell him he can give me a call for details. Maybe he can help us gain some traction on this problem....

Thanks Jason!

And no biggy the only reason i picked up the phone is because i knew it was you. Only person Ive ever talked to in South Carolina haha.

Thanks again Jason! Youve been a great help! Throw in some Fox, Rock Krawler and Krawl Off Road Stickers/decals for me! If you've got any that is :wavey:

Jackster3 11-23-2012 02:38 PM

Updates-

Front Bumper decided and ordered.

Rugged Ridge XHD with winch mount

Got a killer deal on amazon for 200 bucks new. Pricing error :)

Some other guys got in too before they realized and fixed it.

Ill be ordering the prerunner guard but not to sure on the full width end caps.

Whoah! This is news to me. Mine installed fine and didn't seem to cause any concern when I put them on. I angled mine with the 90* bend turning the hose toward the rear of my Jeep. They do indeed sit out there in "no man's land," but I didn't see a problem with it.

I'm not sure what to do now.


Back to topic, nice build Jackster. Looking forward to seeing it come together. :cool:

Hell yeah! Careful with the black lugs, though. Half of mine (Pro Comps) are already rusted pretty badly after just four months. I'm working with Jason at KOR to see what can be done about it...

Nice! That's the same combo I just got.

Did DTD throw in the gorilla lugs? I've had them on for 8 months and I don't have any issues
